REIN­VENT­ING AN ICON

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Jewels -

Re­tail card of a Cadenas watch, from Van Cleef & Arpels’ 1939 archives It’s been 80 years since its in­cep­tion, but Van Cleef & Arpels’ Cadenas re­mains as one of the most iconic time­pieces, and with good rea­son. In­spired by the Duchess of Wind­sor,

the watch fea­tures an an­gled dial and dou­ble snake chain bracelet, but this year’s up­date gives it con­tem­po­rary

pizzazz. Re­tain­ing its orig­i­nal design, the dial gains in­creased vis­i­bil­ity, thanks

to en­larged di­men­sions of its 12 hour mark­ers. The time­piece is also adorned in sump­tu­ous di­a­monds, serti neige style.
